'A lock up house has been built at Wolsingham, containing three cells, and forming part of the county police station and justice room ... The site is well chosen. Each cell has a small glazed window, looking into a garden belonging to the station. The windows however are not very secure, and a guard door is wanted at the entrance to the cells. There is a provision for warming and ventilating, and the cells were dry. Each cell has a guard bed, with matting and rugs for bedding. The place was in neat order.'
